Favre Prepares For the Long Haul

Favre Prepares For the Long Haul

Record breaking quarterback Dylan Favre is receiving interest from schools all over the country. Many in south Mississippi expect Favre to follow the family bloodlines to Hattiesburg and play for the Golden Eagles of Southern Miss, but the talented quarterback reports he is still wide open to the possibilities.

"I am getting a lot of letters, but nothing real serious so far," said Favre. "I am getting them from all over. There's not a lot they can do right now, but send letters."

One of the schools that is in regular contact with Dylan is Southern Miss. Back during the season Favre had the chance to spend some time with Golden Eagle head coach Larry Fedora.

"I went up there on an unofficial visit for the Boise State game and I sat down and talked to Coach Fedora for a while," said Dylan. "He asked me how I was doing and how my year went. We didn't get to spend a lot of time together because he had to get down to the locker room."

Favre plans to re-visit the Hattiesburg campus this summer and show the Golden Eagle coaching staff just what he is capable of.

"I am going to camp up there this summer," said Dylan. "A lot of people assume I am going up there. Everybody in my family has gone there. I want to take my time and not jump into anything too quick. My dad said we want to delay the decision as long as we can, so I can be sure about what I want to do. I just want to go through the process and see what it holds for me. I wouldn't mind going there. I know that."

Schools looking to recruit Dylan will likely feature pass offenses that make the defenses defend every inch of the field.

"I think the spread is best for me kind of like what Texas Tech runs, but I could play in a pro style offense too. My size will probably prevent me from doing that," said Dylan. "I think I could play in any offense if I was given the chance to, but I think the spread is probably where I fit in the best."
